. when is a administration came in, when obama talked in 2008 about fundamental transformation of the nation, they went after the major pillars of u.s. capitalism. they went after the health care sector, the financial sector, and they went after the energy sector. they really like this shows they don't care about the eagles, they only care about remaking the energy sector. we have seen so many green energy boondoggles that have cost the taxpayers billions of dollars, now we are going to see the lives of eagles caught up in the fundamental transition. stuart: if they were to say he cannot kill golden eagles, you have to shut windfarms down. so, the point is these sacrificed. charles: didn't we hear the argument a porcupine caribou, re-conception of certain salamanders. the polar bear, the woodpecker, they use all these things even with keystone people talk about certain species that were endangered. according to the wildlife society lecture 888 were killed. 573 birds were killed. this is mass killing of species of animals that supposedly to your point the obama crowd loved these

, that's something he has to address. >> president obama is coming be in nur preer from republicans and democrats to fire members of his administration in the wake of that botched healthcare.gov rollout. do you that i is going to happen? >> this is a president that doesn't like to fire people. he nudges them out. if anyone is under the gun, it is folks at the health and human services. they have a few more weeks to make sure this website is working before anyone potentially loses their job. >> now the house extended a ban on plastic guns yesterday and the senate is expected to follow. why was this ban seemingly so easy to pass when restrictions on ak-47s and further background checks ran into such trouble even in the face of the terrible tragedy like the newtown shooting? >> the nra stayed quiet. they said nothing about this. that is partly, of course, the gun industry would prefer you buy a gun from than make one through a 3 d printer. so staying quiet and not taking a position is seen as favoring this bill. that makes it easier for republicans and democrats from gun friendly areas

thing to remember is that this administration is focusing on this in a way that is quite unprecedented. about five days ago president obama called this the defining challenge of our time, specifically income inequality. the upper 10% of americans is making 50% of the income in the country. all of those solutions are incredibly difficult to stomach. they mean increasing the minimum wage which in turn may mean more expensive goods for americans. it means reducing executive compensation, which means pissing off a lot of very powerful people. it means things like increasing revenues, which obviously is a very hard sell. >> i came from cnbc, and when they talk about redistribution of wealth, they literally break out in hives and that's the type of thing. is that the only thing that can accomplish closing the gap? is that really -- you have to just do that? or are there other things like what bill clinton did with welfare to workers, some other things that could maybe do other than just that? >> i think that a robust welfare state can actually create a safety net for people and that can allo

: president obama tried as if he refuted clearing the health care law more than just a website. still the website and problems sending payment information to insurance companies continue to hamper the administration efforts to get americans enrolled in health insurance. with that white house focused on the benefits, eliminating pre-existing conditions on insurance policies and actually an dollars in benefits to limit the cost of insurance. highlighting it daily for the next couple of weeks. republicans continue their assault on the law. >> it is not just a broken website, this deal is fundamentally flawed. causing people to lose the doctor of their choice, causing them to lose their health plan and if that isn't enough, they are having to pay much higher prices at the same time. >> while absent last six weeks of signing blame and rooting for failure, the house democrats working with the administration have rolled up our sleeves and gone to work and we are fixing the problems with the affordable care act. >> we will hear from president obama this afternoon on obamacare. back to you. co

to be the main focus of this administration. how do you read what he's saying. >> i thought it was the best speech, certainly in the economy. i've heard president obama give. i thought it was a strong and persuasive case. i think the facts are there. there can be no doubt about t between 1979 and 2007, 13.5% of this nation's total income was transferred to the top 1%. that's is-- 1.1 industrial to the top 1% of families. just in that period of time. and it's not just an accident. i mean yes, globalization has contributed to it but we have trade policies. we have economic policies. we have tax policies. all of which has contributed to, and workers policies, union policies, labor policies. all of which have been directed to channels for helping those at the very top. and there's no question about it. it's worked. >> go ahead. >> and we're going to pick up on that in just a minutement but we are going to take a short break right now. pick up on this and let david have a chance to weigh in. but right now we are going to take a short break to allow your public television station to ask for your

obama turns his attention abroad. at the forum on middle east policy in washington, d.c. the president outlined the administration's plan to curb iran's nuclear program. he just wrapped up his comments a few minutes ago. >> ultimately my goal as president of the united states, something that i've said publicly and privately and shared everywhere i've gone, is to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. but what i've also said is the best way for us to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon is for a comprehensive, verifiable diplomatic resolution. if at the end of six months it turns out that we can't make a deal, we're no worse off and in fact we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and even strengthen them. >> we get more now from nbc white house correspondent kristen welker. kristen, this interim deal with iran really seemed to dominate the conversation today. what stood out to you? >> reporter: well, craig, i thought one of the most interesting moments this afternoon was when mr. sabon asked president obama why is this nuclear

? >> president obama is trying to get out of the defensive crouch he's been with the struggles over the healthcare.gov website. now that the administration believes it has turned around that website, it's trying to go on offense and stalk about his economic agenda for narrowing income inequality. part of that is health care itself. part of that is investments and infrastructure and education. part of it, as the president said in the speech today at center for american progress, is a raise in the minimum wage. >> last month voters in new jersey decided to be the 20th state to raise theirs even hi high higher. that's why the d.c. council decided to do it, too. i agree with those voters. i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard working americans across the entire country. >> note, president obama invoked new jersey, the state of governor chris christie, who may be a republican candidate for president in 2016. this is a difficult goal to accomplish because many republicans, even though the president disputes this argument, make the ar umeguments is going to
